selection as a senior after posting 47/1/4 from
his cornerback position. Started seven games at
safety as a junior totaling 50/2/4.
gifted secondary prospect with a good degree of
upside potential. Sized well, technically sound,
and an outstanding athlete. Fluid transitioning
with opponents off the line, physical and bumps
throughout routes. Excellent footwork in reverse,
displays an explosive plant and break on the
ball, with a quick burst of closing speed. Locates
the pass in the air, boxes out opponents and
battles to defend the throw. Tough defending
the run. Displays skill in both press and zone
Negatives: Coming off an average senior
season when he seemingly played back on
his heels and continually got caught out of
position. Did not display a sense of timing last
season, looking hesitant and indecisive on the
field. Has had prior off-the-field concerns that
resulted in suspension.
Analysis: A one-time
highly considered prospect many thought would
be a top-ten pick, Jackson's underachieving
play as a senior, as well as off-the-field issues
previous to last season, have pushed him down
draft boards. Possesses all the tools needed to
be a big- time player at the next level but must
get his game back on track, focusing on the
task at hand for sixty minutes. A prospect who
could end up starting as a rookie if he hits on all
cylinders or be a career journeyman in the NFL.
